It’s the first of December. In addition to it being the first day in the last month of the year, it’s also when I allow myself to begin with the month-long Christmas song onslaught. For fans, Yo La Tengo’s annual run of Hanukkah shows in Hoboken has become the stuff of legend. So, in keeping with the spirit, here are a couple of YLT Christmas nuggets, from a ways back, found on Merry Christmas From Yo La Tengo.

MP3: Yo La Tengo :: Rock & Roll Santa
MP3: Yo La Tengo :: It’s Christmas Time
